"Those who can fly often set their sights on this airborne fortress."
—Heroes and Heralds Mode description
S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier is one of the Marvel stage in Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. It features one of Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarriers, a massive aircraft used by the secret organization S.H.I.E.L.D.
The stage takes place in front of the Statue of Liberty at midnight, with the characters fighting on an aircraft in front of the statue. The whole area is under attack from an unknown enemy force, and as soon as the battle start several enemy airships begin shooting in the background. As the battle unfolds, the massive Helicarrier on the center of the background slowly rises up in the sky and begins shooting back with its cannons at the enemy force, while several jet fighters engage them on the air. The cannons on the aircraft the battle takes place also shoot at the enemies on the sky, and a jet fighter periodically takes flight from the takeoff platform in the background.
S.H.I.E.L.D. Air ShowEdit
S.H.I.E.L.D. Air Show is the stage's alternate version introduced in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The variation is now set on the flight deck of the Helicarrier itself in broad daylight. The area is now calm as the helicarrier floats amidst the clouds, with the fighters fighting in front of its control tower and a large hangar elevator. There's no background activity outside of some fighter jets flying around or at times taking off from the helicarrier.
